This past weekend was my 4th (!) Capital TransPride, the second one held where the future was born in Washington, DC, at 14th and U Streets, Northwest (there’s a short history of this intersection in last year’s blog post: My 3rd Capital TransPride, Washington, DC USA).

As predicted, the room became more full, with more doctors, nurses, therapists, health leaders, and future leaders in general. Even more photographers – as you can tell, mine was not the only camera in the room, nor was it the best one 🙂 .

In other words, just another day in Washington, DC, the capital of a world learning to love better.

Compared to my first TransPride, when there was little access to evidence-based medical care, less federal protection for science and the future, less respect for people being their authentic selves, there’s also less to be said about why to participate in this event compared to 2013. The future pretty much arrived.

The rest of my photos are below, enjoy!
